. >>> good evening, americans, and welcome to "the ed show" from new york. there are tragedies in life that shake our souls and break our hearts. today the nation experienced one of those tragedies. every american will struggle to come to grips with what happened today in a small community in connecticut. sandy hook elementary school in the small community of about 27,000 residents was the site of a shooting rampage. at this hour we know 26 people at the school were shot and killed by a lone gunman. 20 of those deceased were children. surviving students and their parents said teachers ordered children to hide in closets. witnesses reported hearing dozens of shots, as many as 100 rounds. police found the shooter dead. officers never fired a shot. the gunman's mother was found dead at a newtown location where the gunman lived. police have released no motive for the attack. the weapons used in the shooting were all legally purchased and were registered to the gunman's mother. an emotional president obama addressed the nation this afternoon from the white house. >> we've endured too many o
enforcement official who jonathan, who is our experienced criminal justice reporter in new york at wnbc is reporting that a law enforcement official in the area is saying that 17 or 18 children may, in fact, be dead and that seven or eight adults as well are believed killed. >> well, first, of course, our thoughts and prayers are with those people with their family members who are now, i'm sure, trying to find out what happened. we hope that situation -- we -- our thoughts are with them. david is exactly right. there's been no debate about gun control in this country for years, despite a series of these horrific shootings. i wonder if that's about to change. governor hickenlooper, the very popular governor of colorado, says enough time has passed since that movie theater shooting that was so horrific says now may be the time in january for the legislature there to talk about gun control, and michael bloomberg, who is about to leave as mayor of new york says he wants to be a counterweight to the nra and has made some contributions in this past election for candidates who are willing to t
these discussions to the american people and i look forward to hearing from my friend from new york and what he has to say. we have talked about time and again about the importance of what we are trying to accomplish in this house in protecting the medicare program. i represent a district that has 135,000 medicare beneficiaries. it's actually the fourth most medicare beneficiaries of any congressional district in the country. so the people that i represent have a strong interest, as does every member of this house in making sure that medicare is preserved, it's protected and strengthened and it's always going to be be there, not just for the 135,000 beneficiaries that participate in the medicare program today, but for generations to come. and we aren't going to stand here as democrats or republicans or any political affiliation and say that everything is working perfectly and nothing needs to be altered. the fact is with regard to medicare that 1/3 of the people who qualify for medicare, 1/3 of the people who qualify for medicare today use every penny that they have paid into the system over the co
. but according to the new york times, congressional negotiators have dropped the provision in the effort to merge the bill's house and senate versions. the swiss banking giant ubs has been ordered to pay a $1.5 billion fine for its role in the manipulation of the london interbank offered rate, or libor, which provides the basis for rates on trillions of dollars in transactions across the globe. the rigging of libor meant millions of borrowers paid the wrong amount on their loans. the bulk of the fines, $1.2 billion, will be paid in the u.s., with the rest going to britain and switzerland. ubs has also admitted to committing wire fraud through its tokyo branch on libor rates in japanese currency. at least nine medical workers have been killed in a series of attacks on a polio vaccination effort in pakistan. three people were killed today near the city of peshawar, one day after six workers, all female, were killed in peshawar and karachi. the shootings are believed to be part of a militant campaign against polio eradication in response to the c.i.a.-backed fake vaccination program in pakistan that
of new york city. it's near danbury, connecticut. the young man who police say was the shooter reportedly walked into two different classrooms at sandy hook elementary. he fired dozens of rounds. he killed 26 people. 18 children pronounced dead at the scene. six adults pronounced dead at the scene. and then two children who survived their initial wounds and were hospitalized later died in hospital. the shooter then killed himself at the school. the associated press is citing a law enforcement official moments ago saying authorities found more than the previously described two guns at the school once they responded. more firearms than the two we have previously heard about. they're not giving any further details yet. but that report just in from the associated press. the students who were not shot, none of them older than fourth graders, were escorted out of the building by police officers this morning. they were taken to a fire station next door. police officers reportedly told some of the children to keep their eyes closed until they had reached the parking lot. law enforcement officials
bargains too. alison kosik is in new york. you probably get the best price on things today. >> you would think so. if you ever had any doubts that we're not a nation of procrastinators, think again. 17 million people out in the stores just today. believe it or not, it's not as many as the number of people who hit the stores on black friday weekend. still "consumer reports" put out a survey they conducted september 10th through 17th, and look at what they found. 67% of shoppers, they're not done yet shopping. 14%, they haven't even begun. so today is the first day they're starting their christmas shopping with hours to go. as you said, carol, you're probably going to find a lot of bargains out there for toys, winter clothes, and other items retailers want off their shelves by january. that's not what last-minute shoppers are likely looking for surprisingly. well over half told "consumer reports," they'll just grab a gift card at this point. wine and liquor, they're also popular last-minute shoppers. 27% said they'll give cash. and 4% said, i'll give you an iou. >> come on. >> there are 4%

of california determined to get an assaults weapon ban on the floor this week, and schumer of new york sensing a political opportunity outlining to task gun control legislation this time. >> i think we could be at a tipping point for two reasons, a tipping point where we might actually get something done. first, this was not a single second, of course, it involved children. lou: enthusiasm for gun control reached a feverish level at msnbc where one of the left wing host called for the outright taking of guns from citizens. ed schuls telling twitter followers that we are the constitution, and we, as the people, can change whatever we want. get ready, dude. the most zealous, not alone, 20 members of congress calls for new gun control laws while the details of what happened are far from clear. those legislators, members of the democratii party, ignore the fact that guns were prohitted at or near that school, that all the guns had been legally purchased. former homeland security director, virginia tech review panel member, governor tom ridge says mental illness has been ignored in all of this. he
of friday. a lot of people were frankly shocked by your presentation. he was the "new york post," conservative publication, and there's the headline "gun nut, nra loon in bizarre rant." and "the hartford courant." headline says that the nra's response falls flat. the congressman from the district of newtown, chris murphy "walking out of another funeral and was handed the nra statement. the most tone deaf statement i've ever seen. just the reaction to the reaction to your words? >> if it's crazy to call for putting police and armed security in our schools, then call me crazy. i think the american people think it's crazy not to do it. it's the one thing that will keep people safe, and the nra is going to try to do that. we're going to support an immediate appropriation before congress to put police officers in every school and we're going to work with asa hutchinson who has agreed to work with us to put together a voluntary program drawing on retired military, drawing on retired police, on former secret service, on all of these people that can actually go in and make our kids safe

. nothing to stop the epidemic of senseless gun violence that plague not only our major cities like new york and chicago, but countless small towns throughout our nation, towns with names like newtown, aurora, tucson, dekalb, blacksburg and littleton. in the years i have been a member of this body, this house has not held a single hearing, not one to address gun violence. while over 30,000 americans die each year from gun violence, over 400 lives have been lost by gun violence in my hometown of chicago, people are dying every day. . we in this body are afraid to talk about it. the time has come for us to stop listening to the gun lobby and start listening to the american people. the fact is the majority of americans gun owning and not, desire commonsense, reasonable gun regulation. congress must no longer stand in the way of reasonable legislation, instead we must champion it. the american people want to see background checks required on all firearm purchases instead of the fractions of sales that get done today. 408% of u.s. gun sales are by private sellers who are not required to perform b

: thank you. it is 60 miles east of fork city, in fairfax county, one of the richest counties in new york. it looks like something out of reader's digest. a community as immunity would seem to violence as any community in america. but today front and center the latest act of violence in america, the shooting, today, are the second biggest attack on an american educational institution since virginia tech in 2007 when 32 were killed. former homicide detective, rod, what do you make of this? >> what i can tell you and the viewers is what the police are doing. what we would do if an investigation, horrific investigation like this, trying to figure out what was the motive behind this suspect's actions. why the children? that is the question. the other question as investigators, where did he get the weapons in we will find that out the next day or two. where did he get the ammunition? why did he target this school? this is a very fluid investigation and there are several agencies right new. i got off the phone with the contact in connecticut that tells me that the forensic laboratory has been c
hhamto binghamton, new york, and aurora theater. they aren't concentrated in any one part of the country, not confined to any particular setting. shootings have occurred at a pennsylvania hospital, a miami funeral home, a soccer tournament in delaware and a mall in oregon. 85 people died in those 14 incidents. many of them make news for a day or two. then they fade. although some incidents are big enough to prompt action a little bit. after the virginia tech massacre, we learned the gunman's history showed he had treated for mental issues for years. in response, then governor tom cain signed new mental health reform into law giving the sate more latitude to commit mentally ill people who pose a danger and commenting $42 million to the state's facility. two years later, the state found no increase in the number of people committed and multiple cuts to the funding. earlier this year, in colorado, an attack exposed how easy it is to purchase ammunition online. the shooter wag able to bypass federal background checks and buy 3,000 rounds for a pair of glock handguns and 300 shotgun shells, a
to places like new york city or cities in our state and i've always said those exceptions in the absence of a tougher federal legislation is not good for connecticut, not good for our cities and, again, i also have firmly believed that these high-capacity magazines are extremely dangerous. having said that, being in the top five, i think there have been people who previously thought they've done enough in connecticut. i'm not saying i'm one of those. i doubt there is one of those left. >> -- do you think it meets this state law, our state laws -- >> it's been pointed out, and i've taken the time to point it out, that we could be compliant with the previous assault weapons ban limitation by going from a 30 magazine to a 10 magazine. i think that's a commonsense piece of legislation that could be taken up. >> -- enough information to say mental illness played a part in this -- this situation, and how would you go about improving what seems to be a very fractured mental health system? >> the -- with respect -- i don't have a diagnosis. it's possible that the criminal investigation may have
legal analyst. he's joining us from new york. here's what the constitution, the second amendment says, you know this well. a well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. over the years, as you well know, jeffrey, this has gone through a lot of interpretations. most recently in 2008. >> very dramatically different interpretations. before 2008, for 100 years, that first clause, the so-called militia clause, was read by the supreme court and other courts to trump the right to keep and bear arms. that amendment was interpreted for decades as giving individuals no right to keep and bear arms. in 2008, that changed on a dime. the united states supreme court in a decision called hellar said that the second amendment gives individuals the right to keep and bear arms but what arms, where you get to keep them, that's still very much up for grabs. >> so what restricts are legal? >> well, let's start with what restricts we know are illegal. it is illegal now for a government, a local government or the
